The power of a Gossip

What if you found out something about me that you don’t approve of but has nothing to do with you? maybe you spotted me with a glass of martini or getting intimate with someone..would that really change the reality of me? would I all of a sudden move from the ‘good’ person category to the ‘bad’?

I was SHOCKED, really shocked when I heard that this happened to someone around me.. someone who was at the top of their game.. a really good heart and a respectful person who has been scrutinized for their lifestyle of choice which by the way had nothing to do with every one of us.. this is the power of Gossip!

What really shocked me was not other’s approval or disapproval of that person .. I’ve heard all the gossips and seen the fake pretentious smiles.. but what really shocked me was the reaction of some of the people who I respect who had the authority to ask this person to leave ‘the gathering’ .. because their choices may have affects in when way or another although they truly like and approve of this person’s choice of life … but the power of society comes first!

I wish that we start to look at the things that we have in common more than the things that would tear us apart… but that’s just my opinion what is yours?
